    Scored from Facebook Marketplace for free. Figured I would split with my brother in law, since he does more meat smoking than I do nowadays. I plan on cutting slabs and splitting into chunks, and save all the sawdust. 20210830_170741.jpg

    Ya it was. Those bigger rounds had to be close to 200lbs. Good thing the guy giving it away was able to help load, because I didn't bring a saw or maul.

    That’ll last a long time through a smoker

    When you get it all chipped and bagged, you can send some my way. I just about have my first smoker built and now need some chips to try it out with.;)

    Any details on your smoker build? I’ve got a smoker rattling around in my head that I need to build some year when I got time…

    On the Fireside Chat grouping, in the Smokehouse section, I have a thread Smoker Build that I just updated with my progress. I'm going as Hillbilly on it as possible and scrounging as much as possible for free just as part of the challenge. Not doing too bad, only have $30 into it and I'm almost done.

    Love apple for smokin' and for heating the home. When I load up my basement, the whole house smells great for a few weeks.
